Title : 3/31
passage : Matthew 26:14-25.
passagePhrase : He who has dipped his hand into the dish with me is the one who will betray me. The Son of Man indeed goes, as it is written of him, but woe to the one by whom the Son of Man is betrayed. It would be better for that person to have never been born.

Judas’s betrayal of Jesus has led me to reflect on the recent attempted coup at the nation’s Capital. Many are arguing that President Trump betrayed our democracy both by inciting the violence and by calling fraudulent a perfectly fair and free election. His betrayal goes even deeper than this, though, to the very idea of equality, an ideal without which democracy itself makes no sense. He has praised and endorsed white supremacist groups, dismissed women out of hand with sexist language, and he and his administration have worked hard to undo civil rights gains for people of color, women, gays and lesbians, trans and gender non-conforming citizens. Each of these behaviors embraces inequality as its ideal and that is a betrayal of the very ideal at the heart of democracy. As Lent comes to an end, is it possible that “we” have betrayed our friends, our neighbors, our ideals? Has this season of renewal strengthened our commitment to search for truth and to help create a more inclusive, egalitarian, compassionate, and sustainable world?
